Southampton sack manager Mauricio Pellegrino

Newcastle United v Southampton: match preview

Southampton have sacked manager Mauricio Pellegrino after a worrying slump which has seen the club slip down the Premier League and into a relegation battle.

Former Liverpool defender Pellegrino had been under increasing pressure as the season progressed, with fans frustrated by his perceived defensive tactics and pundits accusing the players of not playing for him.

Since taking over at St. Mary's Stadium in June 2017, Pellegrino has won just eight matches with Southampton, slightly above 23 percent of the games he has coached.

The Argentine's final game in charge was a 3-0 loss to Newcastle at St James' Park, in which Kenedy's double ensured a vital three points for Rafa Benitez's side.

Several Newcastle players stood out as they helped the club beat Southampton, but it's Kenedy drawing widespread praise.

A number of them took to social media to laud their star and make sure that everyone knew just how good he was on a pivotal day for their side. They have only scored 29 goals this season, as they have essentially lacked any real attacking intent.

After 30 matches the club sit 17th in the Premier League and face a relegation fight in the closing run with Crystal Palace and Stoke both just one point back.

The former Watford manager Marco Silva is among the possible candidates, although it is understood he is considering a return to Portugal this summer.

Southampton take on Wigan in the FA Cup quarter-finals this Sunday and due to the upcoming global break, they don't have another Premier League match until March 31 when they travel to London to face West Ham United. Will the Cherries boss jump ship to their arch-rivals?

Conceding 44 goals in the Premier League so far this season, Southampton may not have the worst defence but they do have one of the most error prone.
